Hammer and a nail?

I have Husky Floor Liners that are molded to fit our trucks, and that might help you out.

I'm surprised that didn't work. Did you clean the area where the velcro goes with rubbing alcohol before putting down the velcro?

Try some of that webbing liner. Its the stuff you put in toolboxes etc to keep stuff from sliding around. You can also buy it in assorted sizes at most home improvement stores etc. Its used to keep throw rugs in place on a hardwood floor etc. I don't know if it will work in this case.

Are these the ones that you have?

I was just headed to get them today. Let me know... maybe I'll hold off if you're annoyed with them sliding around. That's usually my biggest complaint here too.

Oops, just noticed you have the vinyl floor. I bet that's the key. I had that in a Ranger one time and couldn't get anything to stick until I glued some of that kitchen shelf no-slip stuff to the bottom of my floor mats.

My new '08 1500 QC has a metal hook in the carpet that sticks through an eyelet in the floor mat, which keeps it secured nicely.

Of course, mine is carpet on carpet, but I imagine that you could attach 2 hooks to the flooring for each mat and that would work well, even on vinyl.

If you look on these slush mats below, you can see the built-in hole in the lower-left corner of the drivers mat.

I have husky liners also. They are great in my truck, but not sure how they would do on the vinyl floor.

I had the plastic huskys in my last few trucks on plastic and carpet floors, never had an issue with them moving even though they were not connected to the floor at all.

Thanks for the heads up on the WeatherTech "FloorLiner" -- Ordered a set of the front liners today (plus a power tailgate lock :) )

I wanted to bump this and mention I got the Weathertech "Floorliner" for the front and, for the most part, they are excellent.

The drivers side fits like a glove...like someone had poured in a liquid plastic directly onto my floorboard. It fits that well.

However, the passenger side is not nearly as good a fit. A couple of the folds in the mat seem to be off slightly, causing the whole piece to just...not sit right. I don't know if I got a defective one or if they are all this way.

You can see a couple of the gaps in the passenger pick below. Not that huge a deal, obviously, but it's a little annoying how one mat fits so perfectly, while the other, well, doesn't. Anyone else had a similar experience?

What color is your interior, and do the mats match the dodge color ?

I am looking to get a set of mats that cover the carpet near the gas pedal to the right. Most mats don't cover this area, and you still get mud on the carpet from the side of your boots.
